• READ THE RUECKERT

     

    VOLUME 5 NOW AVAILABLE

    This series of ebooks has hundreds of self-timer pictures of Jochen in his hotel room du jour and dozens of little anecdotes about the inanities of traveling as a jazz musician. You can buy the .epub file here and then read them on any computer or mobile device

    Volume 1 and 3 feature a beautiful foreword from Hayden Chisholm, comparing Jochen equally to none other than Thomas Mann and Elvin Jones.

    Peter Hum writes in his top 10 jazz for bookworms list of 2013:

    "Rueckert’s is a must-read, if rambling, reality check. His marvelously aware, painstaking accounts of shabby treatment at the hands of airline staff, promoters, baristas and the like, told in a second-person stream-of-consciousness, evoke sympathy and schadenfreude in equal amounts."

    I recommend using Calibre ebook viewer on windows or mac computers-

    Pocketbook reader on Androids - skip the account registration and read in landscape single page mode. Turn on Immersive mode ( Settings-> Display) to hide the toolbar on top

    Use whatever app Apple decided recently to force you to use for .epub on your Ipad or Iphone - probably "books" at the moment.

    Most devices can now download directly from the email link you will get. Make sure you have a solid WiFi connection as books are around 200 MB
